My EGA friend Judy stitched these two sweet ornaments. One is in purple and has some clear beads on it. When it catches the light it looks just like it has diamonds on it. The other is pink and has beads also. I believe (and I could be wrong with the name of the stitch) it has some queen stitches on it. Both are just so nice and I really appreciate her stitching these. I went to my monthly EGA meeting tonight and found that many of my friends there follow my blog and also are participating in this project. From the bottom of my heart, I say thanks to all who want to be a part of saving lives!
What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
